Dear Governor CT Mai ley: 

In accordance with Public Safety Article, Section 2, Subsection 307 and 308, of the 
Annotated Code of Maryland, the Maryland Department of State Police is pleased to submit, the 
2008 Uniform Crime Report, Crime in Maryland . This publication represents the 34 ,h annual 
Crime in Maryland report. 

The 2008 Crime in Maryland publication provides valuable information to law 
enforcement personnel, policy makers and interested parties to include those in academic, civic 
and research organizations. The statistics presented in this release are an indication of crime and 
criminal activities known to, and reported by, law enforcement agencies for 2008. The 
information presented focuses on the incidence of crime and provides an indicator over time of 
variations in crime trends. 

Maryland law enforcement agencies contribute crime data to the Maryland Uniform 
Crime Reporting Program. Statistics pertaining to crime trends could not have been compiled 
without the dedication and cooperation of all police agencies, sheriffs offices and specialized 
law enforcement agencies throughout the State of Maryland. Contributions by Maryland law 
enforcement agencies to the Uniform Crime Reporting Program provide the Maryland 
Department of State Police the opportunity to develop and present a comprehensive picture of 
crime in Maryland. 

Sincerely, 

Terrence B. Sheridan 
Superintendent

Executive Summary 

An annual release since 1975, Crime in Maryland reports crime 
statistics provided by Maryland Law Enforcement agencies to the State's 
Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program. Crime in Maryland details crime 
incidents, clearance rates, arrests, law enforcement officers killed and 
assaulted, and law enforcement employee data. Statewide, county, 
municipality, and reporting agency perspectives are presented within the 
report. The statewide UCR Program was developed to report crime in 
Maryland to the National UCR Program administered by the Department of 
Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation. The Maryland program has 
evolved to collect and report data on domestic violence, hate bias and 
carjacking incidents and arrests. Reports and statistics pertaining to 
hate bias and carjacking incidents and their associated arrests are 
released in separate publications to facilitate detailed reporting. 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program collects information on crimes 
that were selected as an index to represent crime in the United States. 
These index crimes are murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, 
breaking or entering, larceny-theft and motor vehicle theft. Although 
not an index crime, data pertaining to the crime of arson is also 
collected, analyzed and reported through this report. 

Crime in Maryland increased two percent in 2 008, when compared to 
2007. There were 233,566 total crime incidents reported in 2008 compared 
to 228,860 in 2007. Violent crime decreased two percent. The violent 
crime group consists of murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault. 
Property crime increased three percent during the same period. The 
composition of the property crime group is breaking or entering, larceny- 
theft and motor vehicle theft. The 2008 percent increase or decrease of 
the index crime breakdown is as follows: 



Murder

Arrests in Maryland increased two percent in 2008, when compared to 
2007. There were 303,270 arrests reported in 2008 compared to 298,320 in 
2007. Of the total arrests, 255,240 or 84 percent were adults. This is 
an increase of two percent over 2007. Juvenile arrests accounted for 
48,030 or 16 percent of arrests in 2008. This is a one percent decrease 
over 2007. Arrests for drug offenses totaled 57,680 in 2008. This is a 
four percent increase over similar arrests reported in 2007. In 2008, 
23,992 persons were arrested for driving while intoxicated. This is a 
decrease of one percent over similar arrests reported in 2007. 

Four Maryland law enforcement officers died in the line of duty 
during 2008. There were 4,013 Maryland law enforcement officers 
assaulted in 2008. This represents a decrease of less than one percent 
over similar assaults reported in 2007 and equates to 26 percent of full 
time law enforcement officers employed in Maryland. 

In 2008, there was a one percent increase in the number of full- 
time law enforcement officers in Maryland. There were 15,619 full-time 
law enforcement officers in 2008 compared to 15,465 in 2007. In 2008, 
there were 2.8 full-time law enforcement officers per 1,000 population.

INTRODUCTION 



BACKGROUND 



The Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program is one measure 
that has been taken in the establishment of an effective Criminal 
Justice Information System (CJIS) for the State. This particular 
phase focuses on the incidence of crime and law enforcement. It 
establishes a method to collect, evaluate and process uniform 
statistical data on crime statewide. The Maryland UCR Program 
provides the means to forward valid data to the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation from a single agency and also to consolidate it into 
an annual report entitled Crime in Maryland. 



NATIONAL UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM 

The counterpart of the Maryland UCR Program is the National UCR 
Program which is under the direction of the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation. The National Program resulted from a need for a 
uniform compilation of crime statistics nationwide. Uniform Crime 
Reports were first collected in 1930 after being developed by a 
committee of the International Association of Chiefs' of Police. 
The IACP continues to serve in an advisory capacity to the FBI in 
the current operation of the program. 

Crime statistics voluntarily submitted by individual law 
enforcement agencies from all 50 states are presented annually in 
the FBI's publication entitled Crime in the United States. 



MARYLAND UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM 

The FBI has actively assisted individual states in the development 
of State UCR Programs compatible with the National Program. 
Maryland took advantage of this assistance in 1972 and was able to 
develop its own program by 1975. 

The Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program became operational 
January 1, 1975. This program consists of the uniform 
classification, review, compilation and analysis of crime 
statistics reported by all law enforcement agencies of the State 
pursuant to the guidelines and regulations prescribed by law. 

The responsibility and authority for the collection and 
dissemination of UCR data is assigned to the Department of State 
Police in accordance with Public Safety Article, Section 2, 
Subsection 307 and 308, of the Annotated Code of Maryland. 



PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES 

In keeping with the recommendation of the President's Commission 
on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice, the Maryland 
UCR Program was planned for eventual growth into a complete and 
integrated offender based Criminal Justice Information System. 
Under this program, each offender arrested in Maryland is tracked 
through the entire criminal justice system from time of arrest, 
through the courts, to the correctional system where their exit 
(parole, expiration of sentence, etc.) will be recorded. In this 
manner, a complete "criminal history" on individual offenders will 
be available for use by the police, courts and correctional 
agencies in Maryland. In addition, statistical data derived from 
the CJIS Program will provide assistance in determining the 
overall efficiency of the Criminal Justice System in Maryland and 
will make effective management studies possible. 

The fundamental objectives of the Maryland UCR Program are: 

1. Inform the Governor, legislature, other 
governmental officials and the public as to the 
nature, magnitude and trends of the crime problem 
in Maryland. 

2 . Provide law enforcement administrators with 
criminal statistics for administrative and 
operational use. 

3. Determine who commits crimes by age, sex, race 
and other attributes in order to find the proper 
focus for crime prevention and enforcement. 

4. Provide base data and statistics to measure the 
workload and effectiveness of Maryland's Criminal 
Justice System. 

5. Provide base data and statistics to measure the 
effects of prevention and deterrence programs. 

6. Provide base data and statistics for research to 
improve the efficiency, effectiveness and 
performance of criminal justice agencies. 

7. Provide base data to assist in the assessment of 
social and other causes of crime for the 
development of theories of criminal behavior. 

8. Provide the FBI with complete UCR data to be 
included in the national crime reports. 



REPORTING PROCEDURES 

Under the Maryland UCR Program, law enforcement agencies submit 
specified Uniform Crime Reports. The necessary information for 
each of the required reports is gathered from each agency's record 
of complaints, investigations and arrests. 

Crime data and information is submitted monthly by state, county 
and municipal law enforcement agencies on the number of offenses 
known to them in the following crime categories: 

(1) Criminal Homicide 

(2) Forcible Rape 

(3) Robbery 

(4) Assault 

(5) Breaking or Entering 

(6) Larceny-theft 

(7) Motor Vehicle Theft 

(8) Arson* 

The count of offenses is taken from the record of complaints 
received by law enforcement agencies. This information comes from 
victims, witnesses, other sources or discovered by law enforcement 
during their own operation. Complaints determined by subsequent 
investigation to be unfounded are eliminated from the count. The 
resulting number of "actual offenses known to law enforcement 
agencies" in these crime categories are reported without regard 
for whether anyone is arrested, stolen property is recovered, 
local prosecution policies or any other consideration. 

Reported offenses are recorded by the municipality and county in 
which they occur. Municipal law enforcement agencies report those 
crimes which occur within the cities and state. County agencies 
report those crimes which occur in the counties outside the 
cities . 

A supplemental report is also submitted each month showing the 
value of stolen and recovered property, the type of property and 
the type of offense within a crime category in which it was taken. 
This report also shows the number of stolen vehicles recovered 
locally and by other jurisdictions. In addition, each agency 
reports the number of persons arrested by them or other agencies 
for crimes which have occurred within their jurisdiction. The 
arrest report also shows the age, sex and race of those arrested 
and the disposition of juveniles by the arresting agency. When 
applicable, supplemental reports are submitted regarding the 
persons, weapons and circumstances, etc., involved in homicides, 
domestic violence incidents, officer assaults and "carjackings." 
In addition, police employee data is collected on an annual basis. 

♦Monthly arson reports are submitted for law enforcement agencies by the State 
Fire Marshal's Office and designated county agencies. 



REVIEW PROCESS 

A major concern in the collection of crime statistics for law 
enforcement agencies throughout the state is the uniformity and 
accuracy of data received. Program aides, such as guides and 
instructional classes, do not necessarily guarantee the accuracy 
of the reports submitted by the contributor's, therefore, 
additional controls are necessary. 

Each report received by the UCR section is recorded, examined and 
reviewed for mathematical accuracy and possibly, more importantly, 
for reasonableness. The review process includes numerous checks 
to ensure the validity of information. The elimination of 
duplicate reporting by individual contributors receives particular 
attention. Minor errors are corrected by telephone contact with 
the contributors. Substantial variations and errors are adjusted 
through personal contacts. The personal contacts are invaluable 
to the accuracy and quality of reporting. Field Records 
Representatives are engaged in a constant educational effort, and 
as such, provide a vital link between the UCR Program and the 
contributor. 



POPULATION DATA 

The computation of crime rates, as they appear in this report by 
municipality, county and state are based on the latest available 
population estimates for the year. These population estimates are 
provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation through the 
cooperation and assistance of the United States Bureau of Census. 



LIMITATIONS OF A UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM 

Information currently collected by the Maryland Program is 
generally the same as that gathered by the National System, and 
the methods of classifying and scoring offenses and arrests are 
the same. This readily enables comparisons with other states and 
with the nation, as a whole. However, there are limitations to 
the information collected which should be clearly understood 
before any conclusions are drawn from the UCR data presented in 
this report. 

The main goal of the UCR Program is to furnish police 
administrators with a measure of their activities and operational 
problems as indicated by the number of reported offenses, arrests, 
clearances, etc. 

A first step in the control of crime is to ascertain the true 
dimensions of the problem. However, present statistics, as 
gathered by the UCR Program, measure neither the real incidence of 



crime or the full amount of economic loss to victims. Information 
regarding number of offenses, clearances, value and type of 
property stolen and recovered property are collected only for the 
eight Part I offenses. For Part II offenses, the only information 
submitted is the number of arrests for these crimes. 
Consequently, there is no record of the actual number of these 
offenses occurring, or is there a calculation made for property 
loss . 

The Crime Index does not explicitly take into account the varying 
degrees of seriousness of its seven components (excluding arson) . 
Each crime receives the same weight as it is added to the index; 
consequently, an auto theft is counted the same as a murder and an 
aggravated assault is weighed equally with an attempted breaking 
or entering. Any review of crime must consider the volume, rate 
and trend of each offense that comprises the index and the 
relationship between these seven crimes*. 

The Maryland and National Uniform Crime Reporting Programs are 
designed to measure offenses committed and persons arrested. 
Difficulties can arise if this distinction is not kept clearly in 
mind. Crimes relate to events, arrests relate to persons. Unlike 
traffic violations where there is usually one event, violation and 
offender, a single criminal act can involve several crimes, 
offenders and victims. Relating specific crimes to a criminal or 
offense to evaluate characteristics of those arrested is generally 
beyond the scope of the present Uniform Crime reporting System. 

Juvenile crime and arrest statistics, because of their nature, are 
another area of misunderstanding. Many juvenile offenders are 
handled informally. As a consequence, inaccurate or incomplete 
recording of the event or action may result. Procedures for 
handling juveniles vary between departments more so than the 
handling of adult offenders. Furthermore, the degree of juvenile 
involvement in cleared offenses is probably seriously 
misunderstood because the juvenile clearance indicator is recorded 
only when juveniles are exclusively involved. When both adults 
and juveniles are subjects in a clearance, the juvenile 
participation is not reported. 

The preceding comments should not be viewed as an indictment of 
the Uniform Crime Reporting Program which, admittedly, is designed 
for the operational requirements of law enforcement agencies. 
While the current method of gathering and reporting crime and 
arrest data provide a less than complete picture of criminality in 
our society, the FBI has designed the National Incident Based 
Reporting System to address these limitations. 



♦Arson is not used at this time in computing the Crime Index, 



CRIME FACTORS 



Statistics compiled under the Uniform Crime Reporting Program from 
data submitted by Maryland law enforcement agencies projects a 
statewide view of crime. Awareness of the presence of certain 
crime factors, which may influence the resulting volume and type 
of statistics presented, is necessary if fair and equitable 
conclusions are to be drawn. These crime influencing factors are 
present to some degree in every community. Their presence affects 
in varying degrees the crime experience of that community. 
Attempts at comparison of crime figures between communities should 
not be made without first considering the individual factors 
present in each community. 

Crime, as an outgrowth of society, remains a social problem of 
grave concern. The police are limited in their role to its 
suppression and detection. As stated by the President's 
Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Criminal 
Justice in their report "The Challenge of Crime in a Free Society" 
(1967 - Page 92) : 

"But the fact that the police deal daily with crime 
does not mean that they have unlimited power to 
prevent it, or reduce it, or deter it. The police did 
not create and cannot resolve the social conditions 
that stimulate crime. They did not start and cannot 
stop the convulsive social changes that are taking 
place in America. They do not enact the laws that 
they are required to enforce, nor do they dispose of 
the criminals they arrest. The police are only one 
part of the criminal justice system; the criminal 
justice system is only one part of the government; and 
the government is only one part of society. In so far 
as crime is a social phenomenon, crime prevention is 
the responsibility of every part of society. The 
criminal process is limited to case by case 
operations, one criminal or one crime at a time." 

Listed below are some of the conditions which affect the type and 
volume of crime that occurs from place to place: 

Density and size of the community population 
and the metropolitan area of which it is a 
part . 

Composition of the population with particular 
reference to age, sex and race. 



Economic status of the population. 

Relative stability of the population including 
number and ratio of seasonal visitors, 
residents, commuters and other transients. 

Climate and seasonal weather conditions. 

Educational, recreational and religious 
characteristics . 

Standards governing appointments to the police 
force. 

Policies of the prosecuting officials and the 
courts . 

Attitude of the public toward law enforcement 
problems . 

The administrative and investigative efficiency 
of the local law enforcement agency, including 
the degree of adherence to crime reporting 
standards . 

Organization and cooperation of adjoining and 
overlapping police jurisdictions. 



CRIME INDEX OFFENSES 



The crime counts listed in this publication are actual offenses 
established by police investigation. When police receive a 
complaint of a crime and the follow-up investigation discloses no 
crime occurred, it is "unfounded." In 2008, police investigations 
that were "unfounded" represented three percent of the complaints 
concerning index offenses. When comparing individual index 
offenses to the number reported, "unfounded" offenses ranged from 
one percent in the aggravated assault category to 23 percent in 
the rape category, the same as in 2 007. 

A total of 233,566 actual Index Offenses were reported to law 
enforcement agencies in Maryland during the calendar year 2008. 
This represents an increase of two percent when compared to the 
2007 total of 228,860 Crime Index Offenses. 

An analysis of Index Offenses by month in 2008 shows that July had 
the highest frequency of occurrence, and February had the lowest, 
the same in 2007. 

The Crime Index Offenses represent the most common problem to law 
enforcement. They are serious crimes by their nature, volume, or 
frequency of occurrence. They are categorized as Violent Crimes, 
which includes Murder, Forcible Rape, Robbery and Aggravated 
Assault, or as Property Crimes, which includes Breaking or 
Entering, Larceny-Theft and Motor Vehicle Theft. 

VIOLENT CRIME 

Violent Crimes involve the element of personal confrontation 
between the perpetrator and the victim; consequently, they are 
considered more serious than Property Crimes because of their very 
nature. These offenses accounted for 15 percent of the total 
Crime Index for 2008. In 2007, Violent Crimes made up 16 percent 
of the Crime Index Total . Violent Crime decreased two percent 
when compared to 2 007. 

PROPERTY CRIME 

The number of Property Crimes reported during 2 08 was more than 
five times greater than the number of Violent Crimes reported. As 
a group, Property crimes made up 85 percent of the total Crime 
Index in 2008. In 2007, Property Crimes made up 84 percent of the 
Crime Index Total . Property Crime increased three percent when 
compared to 2 007. 



RATES 

Crime Rates relate the incidence of crime to the resident 
population. Many other factors, which may contribute to the 
volume and type of crime in a given jurisdiction, are not 
incorporated here, but are shown in the section entitled, "Crime 
Factors . " 

In 2008, the Crime Rate for Maryland was 4,145.9 victims for every 
100,000 population. This represents a two percent increase in the 
crime rate when compared to the 2007 rate of 4,073.4. 

The 2008 Crime Rate for the Violent Crime group was 628.3 
victims per 100,000 inhabitants, a two percent decrease compared 
with the 2007 rate of 641.9. The Property Crime group had a rate 
of 3,517.7 victims, a three percent increase when compared to the 
2007 rate of 3,431.5. 



CLEARANCES 

For Uniform Crime Reporting purposes, a crime is cleared when 
police have identified the offender, have evidence to charge him 
and actually take him into custody. Solutions of crimes are also 
recorded in exceptional instances where some element beyond police 
control precludes formal charges against the offender, such as the 
victim's refusal to prosecute or local prosecution is declined 
because the subject is being prosecuted elsewhere for a crime 
committed in another jurisdiction. The arrest of one person can 
clear several crimes or several persons may be arrested in the 
process of solving one crime . 

Maryland Law Enforcement Agencies cleared 24 percent of all Index 
Offenses reported to them in both 2008 and 2007. 

Violent Crimes recorded a 53 percent clearance rate in 2008, the 
same as in 2007. The Property Crime group experienced an 18 
percent clearance rate in 2008, also the same as in 2007. 

Considered individually, the 2008 Violent Crime clearance rate was 
determined to be 58 percent of the Murders, 57 percent of the 
Rapes, 31 percent of the Robberies and 66 percent of the 
Aggravated Assaults. The Property Crime clearance rates were 15 
percent for Breaking or Entering, 21 percent for Larceny-Theft and 
12 percent for Motor Vehicle Theft. 

The relatively high clearance rate for Violent Crimes as compared 
to Non-Violent Property Crimes is in part attributable to the 
volume difference between the two. Property Crime volume is much 
greater than that of Violent Crime, and police investigation of 
Violent Crime is usually more intense. 

10 



JUVENILE CLEARANCES 

A Juvenile clearance is the clearance of an offense in which all 
of the offenders involved were under the age of 18. If one of the 
offenders was over 17 years of age, the clearance of that offense 
is not considered a juvenile clearance. In 2008, such juvenile 
clearances represented 20 percent of all clearances, the same as 
in 2007. 

Juvenile clearances in the Violent Crime category represented 14 
percent of the total cleared in 2008, the same as in 2007. The 
clearances in Violent Crimes are: Homicide five percent, Rape 
seven percent, Robbery 24 percent and Aggravated Assault 12 
percent . 

In the Property Crime category, clearances involving Juvenile 
offenders represented 23 percent of the total cases cleared in 
2008, compared to 24 percent in 2007. The clearances in Property 
crimes are: Burglary 19 percent, Larceny-Theft 23 percent and 
Motor Vehicle Theft 26 percent. 



STOLEN PROPERTY VALUES 

The total value of Property Stolen during 2008 was $339,773,601, 
which represents a two percent decrease from 2007. Recovered 
Property amounted to $127,590,643, which is 38 percent of the 
total stolen, resulting in a $212,182,958 property loss to victims 
in the State of Maryland during 2008. This property loss 
represents a decrease of four percent when compared to the 
property loss in 2007.

MURDER 



Murder and non-negligent manslaughter is the 
negligent) killing of one human being by another. 



willful (non- 



VOLUME AND RATE 

During 2008, a total of 493 murders were reported. This 
represents an 11 percent decrease over 2007. Murder accounted 
for one percent of all violent crime and less than one percent 
of the crime index. In 2 008, there were 8.8 murders per 100,000 
of population. 



ANALYSIS OF MURDER 

In 2008, 285 murders were cleared with five percent of these 
clearances involving only juvenile offenders. A total of 309 
persons were arrested for murder during 2008. A breakdown of 
persons arrested for murder was 89 percent male, 11 percent 
female, ten percent juvenile, 72 percent Black, 28 percent White 
and less than one percent consisting of American Indian and 
Asian. 

During 2008, 246 of the murder victims were in the 18 to 29 age 
group, representing 50 percent of the total. There were 50 
juvenile victims of murder, accounting for ten percent of the 
total murder victims. 



Handguns were used in 67 percent 
of the reported murders in 2008. 
This represents a 16 percent 
decrease in their use when 
compared to the handgun use in 

2007. The next most used weapon 
was a knife, accounting for 12 
percent of the reported murders in 

2008. This represents a three 
percent increase when compared to 
2007. 



Murder Weapons 




Drug related murders accounted for two percent of the total in 
both 2008 and 2007. 



Family members, as offenders in murder, accounted for 12 percent 
while boyfriend or girlfriend (those not cohabitating) reflects 
two percent of the total reported. There was a nine percent 
increase in family-related murders, while boyfriend or 
girlfriend murders remained the same from 2007. Additionally, 

14 



an acquaintance is listed in 13 percent of the murders reported 
in 2008. Strangers and unknown relationships accounted for two 
other large categories, 20 percent and 73 percent respectively. 

In 45 percent of the murders, the offenders are unknown and not 
described. When the race of the victim and offender is known, 
the offender is most often someone of the same race.

DOMESTIC 
VIOLENCE 



DOMESTIC VIOLENCE 

The Domestic Violence Act of 1994 mandated that all law 
enforcement agencies in Maryland submit copies of their police 
reports of incidences involving domestic violence to the Maryland 
State Police. Through the Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting 
Program, a revised Battered Spouse data collection form was 
created. This new form allowed for the collection of more data, 
which is based upon a revised definition of a domestic violence 
incident under the guidelines of the Maryland Uniform Crime 
Reporting Program. 

Under the Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program the definition 
for a domestic violence incident is considered "An individual who 
has received deliberate physical injury or is in fear of imminent 
deliberate physical injury from a current or former spouse or a 
current or former cohabitant. This includes a homosexual 

relationship." In addition, a domestic violence incident in the 

Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program is considered to be any 
crime against : 

• A married person living with their spouse. 

• A married person estranged from their spouse. 

• A male and female in an intimate relationship who 
are not married to each other and who are 
cohabiting or had cohabited. 

• Individuals of the same sex in an intimate 
relationship who are cohabiting or had cohabited. 

It should be noted that prior to 1996, the statistical information 
collected was only on assaults to a domestic partner and did not 
include individuals of the same sex in an intimate relationship 
who are cohabiting or had cohabited. The following information 
gives a more comprehensive report that includes statistics based 
on the revised definition of domestic violence, including all 
crimes .

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CRIMES 

There are limitations to the information collected which should be 
clearly understood before any conclusions are drawn from the data 
presented in this report. Procedures for handling domestic 
violence crimes vary between law enforcement agencies and counties 
of occurrence . 

The current method of collecting domestic violence information for 
this report provides less than a complete picture. There is at 
present no other statewide informational system in general use 
gathering these statistics from law enforcement agencies that will 
more accurately perform this task. 

There were a total of 18,926 domestic violence crimes reported in 
2008, as compared to 19,391 crimes in 2007, resulting in a 2 
percent decrease. The breakdown is as follows:

Analysis 





















In 2008, 49 percent of all domestic violent crimes occurred 
between the hours of 6:00 P.M. to 1:00 A.M., inclusive. Thirty- 
six percent of domestic violent crimes occurred during Saturday 
and Sunday. When combining these two categories, this would 
indicate that an intensive period for domestic violent crimes 
occurs between 6:00 P.M. and 1:00 A.M. on Saturday and Sunday.

CLEARANCES 

There are two ways of clearing a case. One is by making an arrest 
and charging the person (s) with the offense. The second is known 
as an exceptional clearance. Exceptional clearance means the 
police know the identity and location of the person (s) who 
committed the offense and have enough information to arrest them. 
However, there is some reason beyond their control that prevents 
them from making the arrest . 

The arrest and exceptional clearances reported reflect the 
disposition at the time the domestic violence report form was 
forwarded to the Uniform Crime Reporting Program. These reports 
are not updated; therefore, other arrests and exceptional 
clearances may occur, but would not be reflected in the following 
totals .

ARREST DATA 



ARREST DATA 



The Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program requires the submission 
of monthly reports of persons arrested in the State. A record of 
arrest activity for both Part I and Part II crimes are received from 
state, county and municipal law enforcement agencies showing the 
age, sex and race of persons arrested. Traffic arrests, except 
Driving While Intoxicated, are not reported. A total of 303,270 
arrests for Part I and Part II criminal offenses were reported 
during 2008. In 2007, there were 298,320 arrests, which represents 
a two percent increase. Based on 2 008 population estimates, there 
were 5,383.2 arrests per 100,000 of population in Maryland. The 
arrest rate for 2007 was 5,309.7, representing a one percent arrest 
rate increase. 

A person is counted on the monthly arrest report each time they are 
arrested. This means that a person may be arrested several times 
during a given month and would be counted each time. However, a 
person is counted only once each time regardless of the number of 
crimes or charges involved. A juvenile is counted as "arrested" 
when the circumstances are such that, if the juvenile was an adult, 
an arrest would have been counted or when police or other official 
action is taken beyond a mere interview, warning or admonishment. 

Arrest figures do not indicate the number of individuals arrested or 
summoned since, as stated above, one person may be arrested several 
times during the month. However, arrest information is useful in 
measuring the extent of law enforcement activities in a given 
geographic area, as well as providing an index for measuring the 
involvement in criminal acts by the age, sex and race of 
perpetrators . 

During 2008, 17 percent of all reported arrests were for Crime Index 
Offenses compared to 16 percent in 2007. Analysis of Crime Index 
Arrest Data indicates that larceny-theft comprised the highest 
percentage of all arrests for Crime Index Offenses, with 53 percent 
of the total in 2008, up from 51 percent in 2007. The drug abuse, 
other assaults, driving under the influence and disorderly conduct 
categories recorded the highest percentage of arrests for Part II 
offenses. Theses offenses accounted for 47 percent of the total 
arrests for Part II offenses in 2008.

VIOLENT CRIME ARRESTS 

Violent Crime arrests represented 26 percent of all arrests for 
Crime Index Offenses and four percent of the total arrests. In 
2007, Violent Crime arrests represented 27 percent of Crime Index 
Offenses and four percent of the total arrests. 

A further evaluation indicates that arrests for robbery and 
aggravated assault represented the highest percentage of the total 
arrests for violent crimes with 34 and 60 percent, respectively. 

PROPERTY CRIME ARRESTS 

Property Crime arrests represented 74 percent of all arrests for 
Crime Index Offenses and 12 percent of the total arrests. In 2007, 
Property Crime arrests represented 73 percent of all arrests for

The highest percentage of property crime arrests, 72 percent, 
continues to occur in the larceny- theft category. 

GAMBLING ARRESTS 

A total of 283 gambling arrests were reported during 2008. In 2007, 
454 persons were arrested for Gambling violations resulting in a 38 
percent decrease . 

Arrests for Gambling offenses amounted to less than one percent of 
all reported Part I and Part II arrests in 2008. Persons under the 
age of 18 made up 15 percent of all Gambling arrests in 2008, 
compared to 20 percent in 2007.

DRUG ABUSE VIOLATION ARRESTS 

Information pertaining to drug abuse violation arrests is collected 
according to specific drug categories and whether the arrest was for 
sale or manufacture or possession of a specific drug. During 2008, 
a total of 57,680 arrests for drug abuse law violations were 
reported, compared to 55,408 drug abuse law violation arrests in 
2007, resulting in a four percent increase. 

105 



Evaluation of the reported data discloses that 36 percent of all 
persons arrested for drug abuse violations were under 21 years of 
age, and 13 percent were under 18 years of age in 2 08, compared to 
31 and 14 percent respectively in 2007. 

Analysis of individual categories showed that the highest percentage 
of arrests, which involved opium or cocaine and derivatives, was 49 
percent in 2008 and 52 percent in 2007. Drug abuse arrests for 
marijuana increased to 47 percent in 2008 from 45 percent in 2007. 
Of the total drug abuse arrests, 77 percent were for possession, 
while 23 percent were for sale or manufacture in 2008. In 2007, 76 
percent of the total drug arrests were for possession, while 24 
percent were for sale or manufacturing. 

Possession of marijuana increased to 42 percent of the total drug 
abuse arrests in 2008, from 40 percent in 2007. Possession of opium 
or cocaine and derivatives represented 3 3 percent of the total drug 
abuse arrests in 2008, a decrease from 35 percent in 2007. Arrests 
for sale or manufacture of marijuana amounted to four percent of the 
total drug abuse arrests in 2008. Sale or manufacture of opium or 
cocaine and derivatives amounted to 17 percent of the total drug 
abuse arrests in 2008, the same as in 2007. 

To aid in the study of drug arrests a chart by county is provided.

LAW 

ENFORCEMENT 

OFFICERS 

KILLED AND 

ASSAULTED 



LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS KILLED 



Four law enforcement officers died in the line of duty in Maryland 
during 2008. The following summary is based on information 
provided by their agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. 
The Federal Bureau of Investigation conducts in-depth 
investigations of these tragic incidents in which law enforcement 
officers have made the supreme sacrifice in the performance of 
their duties. 



January 1, 2008 

A 40 year old officer with the Maryland Transportation Authority 
Police was killed working a traffic detail. The 13 year veteran 
officer was struck by a hit and run driver. 



June 27, 2008 

A 10 year veteran of the Prince George's County Police Department 
was killed while attempting to stop a suspected stolen vehicle. 
During the incident, the suspects rammed the 3 9 year old officer's 
cruiser then hit the officer when he got out of the cruiser. 



September 28, 2008 

During an emergency medical transport, a four year veteran of the 
Maryland State Police died when his Medevac helicopter crashed. 
The 34 year old trooper was killed along with the pilot, an 
Emergency Medical Technician and a patient. 



October 23, 2008 

A 39 year old officer of the Frederick Police Department died when 
his cruiser crashed in a wooded area while in a high speed 
pursuit. The five year veteran was attempting to make a traffic 
stop when the suspect began fleeing.

LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS ASSAULTED 

The following information is based on a detailed monthly 
collection of data in the Uniform Crime Reporting System regarding 
the problem of assaults on local, county and state law enforcement 
officers. The large number of reported assaults on sworn officers 
is in part due to a prevalent attitude of disrespect for law 
enforcement in certain elements of our society. 

A total of 4,013 law enforcement officers in Maryland were victims 
of assault in the line-of-duty during 2008, compared to 4,024 
assaults during 2007, resulting in a less than one percent 
decrease . 

The rate of assaults on law enforcement officers for the State was 
26 assaults per every 100 sworn officers in 2008, the same as in 
2007. 

Physical force was used in 87 percent of all assaults on police 
officers . 

The greatest number of assaults, 30 percent, occurred while 
officers were responding to disturbance calls (family disputes, 
man with a gun, etc.) and between the hours of 10:00 P.M. and 2:00 
A.M. 

A total of 3,761 assaults on law enforcement officers were cleared 
during 2008, amounting to a 94 percent clearance rate.

DATA 



LAW ENFORCEMENT EMPLOYEE DATA 



POLICE EMPLOYEE DATA 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program in Maryland incorporates the 
collection of pertinent data relating to the police of the State. 
Information regarding police employee strength is discussed in this 
section. 

This information is submitted by county, municipal and state law 

enforcement agencies and compiled on an annual basis. Specific 

information concerning the number of law enforcement employees 
reflects the status as of October 31, 2008. 

LAW ENFORCEMENT EMPLOYEE RATES 

In 2 008, the average number of full-time law enforcement employees 
(state, county and municipal) including civilian employees, amounted 
to 3.7 for each 1,000 inhabitants of the State, the same in 2007. 
The rate based on sworn personnel only amounted to 2 . 8 per 1,000 in 
population, also the same in 2007. 

The ratio of law enforcement employees per 1,000 population in any 
given area or municipality is influenced by a number of factors, much 
the same as the crime rate. The determination of law enforcement 
strength for a given county or municipality is based on factors such 
as population density, size and character of the community, 
geographic location, proximity to metropolitan areas and other 
conditions which exist in the area generating the need for law 
enforcement services. Employee rates also differ among agencies 
since, in particular, there is a wide variation of the 
responsibilities and level of activity within various law enforcement 
agencies. The information in this section relates to reported police 
employee strength and should not be interpreted as recommended 
strength for any area. 

CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES 

The personnel of each law enforcement agency differ as to the demands 
and responsibilities placed before them. Many police officers are 
fully occupied with clerical tasks and are not free to perform active 
police duties. Some police administrators use civilians in this 
capacity, thus freeing the sworn personnel for actual police-related 
services . 

As of October 31, 2008, 5,178 or 25 percent of the total number of 
police employees in Maryland were civilian.
